1st Joint Symposium on System-Integrated Intelligence:
New Challenges for Product and Production Engineering
June 27th (Wed.) - 29th (Fri.) 2012: Hannover, Germany

Conference Scope


The Symposium provides a forum for academia and industrialists to disseminate their latest innovations and practises.

It focuses on the integration of functions into systems, parts or products which will enable future technologies with enhanced capabilities. The development of new sensor technologies, self-optimizing systems, sensorial materials and self-controlled processes for production or logistic applications within the scope of the Symposium. The conference addresses research in logistics and product engineering from a wide range of fields, e.g. computer science and operations research.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Methods and Algorithms: Agent-based systems, machine learning and biologically-inspired methods for optimization and planning
  • Advanced Applications of Autonomous Objects and Systems
  • Self-Optimization and Autonomous Control: Design, reliability, modeling and validation
  • Human-Machine-Interaction: Visualization and transparency
  • Enabling Technologies: Sensorial materials and systems
  • Advanced sensor integration technology
  • Systems Engineering
  • Advanced sensor integration and embedded systems
